Canada, 2002 (MIFF 2003, Experimental)

Director: Christopher Hills-Wright

An observation of the media frenzy surrounding the events that took place in America on September 11, 2001. This short but provocative film may simply perpetuate the myths of mainstream media but perhaps it can also encourage us to question our capacity for judgement, condemnation and distrust.
